Quinten's Kidney Transplant

In October 2016, Quinten was diagnosed with End Stage Renal Disease. This diagnosis was a shock to our family. Quinten went in to be evaluated for health in donating his kidney to his cousin, and he found out his own kidneys had completely failed.  Now 1 1/2 years later Quinten is finally healthy enough to qualify for the transplant list. It is typically a 3-5 year wait, in the meantime he does 4 hour dialysis treatments 3 days a week until a suitable donor can be found.  Once a matching Kidney is found we will both have to fly to Seattle, as there are no hospitals in the state of Alaska who provide transplant services, and stay in a hotel in Seattle for 2-3 months. 

We are hoping to raise funds to cover the expense of the lengthy hotel stay, and help offset the medication and surgery costs.   

If you would like to help in other ways...please consider becoming a donor for Quinten. All of your expenses would be covered by our insurance company.  If you are interested in being tested please contact Virginia Mason Hospital and our Transplant Coordinator at 1-[phone redacted]
